PRESIDENT 

Anita

Humphreys

2019-2020

 

 

 

I am proud and honoured to be the President of a Club that has shown such courage and foresight over the 21 years since it started in 1998.

My aim will be to encourage and inspire our members to be ambassadors and advocates, for what being a Lion is all about. 
My mission will be to lead our Club to another successful year of service and to achieve the total of 1 million euros raised since the Club started.
We will continue to help our community wherever we can, by providing a service in areas where the:
homeless need feeding, animals need shelter, the sick need a helping hand, the environment needs protecting,  the visually impaired can see better, diabetic and dementia sufferers are supported, the air we breath is clean, violence is curtailed.
All of these concerns can be met if we pull together as a team with one objective, and that is to Serve our Community with strength, vision and kindness.
I thank each and every one of our supporters, who on a day to day basis make our dreams possible. And l encourage new members to step forward and join our family

Lions have a dynamic history. Founded in 1917, we are best known for fighting blindness, but we also volunteer for many different kinds of community projects - including caring for the environment, feeding the hungry and aiding seniors and the disabled.

Lions give sight. By conducting vision screenings, equipping hospitals and clinics, distributing medicine and raising awareness of eye disease, Lions work toward their mission of providing vision for all. We have extended our commitment to sight conservation through countless local efforts and through our international SightFirst Program, which works to eradicate blindness.

Lions serve youth. Our community projects often support local children and schools through scholarships, recreation and mentoring. Internationally, we offer many programs, including the Peace Poster Contest, Youth Camps and Exchange and Lions Quest. 

Our Leo Program provides the youth of the world with an opportunity for personal development through volunteering. There are approximately 144,000 Leos and 5,700 Leo clubs in more than 140 countries worldwide.

Lions award grants. Since 1968, the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) has awarded more than US$700 million in grants to support Lions humanitarian projects around the world. LCIF was also ranked the number one nongovernmental organization in a 2007 study by The Financial Times.

Lions help during disasters. Together, our Foundation and Lions are helping communities following natural disasters by providing for immediate needs such as food, water, clothing and medical supplies – and aiding in long-term reconstruction.

Lions are active. Our motto is "We Serve." Lions are part of a global service network, doing whatever is necessary to help our local communities.
